We went from Slovenia to Wien, Linz, Bergenz (Austria) and München (Germany). There were about 10 Slovenian riders and me, the only one from Croatia. Despite the little difference in language, the whole trip was super fun, we rode skateparks (which are practically on every corner there), bikepark and some street. It was all filmed with 3 camcoders, and there was one photographer who took some legit pics during the trip.

This is a project that overlooks the Croatian scene from a neutral point of view, without being biased by brand or shop owners. We get you all the news, without any filtering.
There is also a COMMUNITY page that pretty much works like Facebook. You have friends, videos, photos, chatrooms and so forth. You really might want to join it.
Don't forget the FORUM: it still hasn't found its final form, but Vinko is working hard to get the best out of it - we're accepting suggestions on how to make it look like to fit your needs.
The portal is very similar to VitalBMX or Pinkbike: anyone can post their news, photos, reports, videos and so on.
Tell all your friends!

Well, at least we have this great video to keep us entertained. Probably shot sometime late 2006/early 2007. Great watch.

A few years back I met a guy who worked for the Path Bike shop here in So. Cal. Then recently he contacted me from Croatia while on a "Mission from God" (Just like the Blues Bros.) with info about a rider there we now help out... Leo Gamboc.
Well, Leo just sent me this video and e mail about Durfee and him getting loose on his first generation Mob. Durfee stomps a backflip 32 years in the making.
Enjoy the shenanigans.
Watch the video once again. You know you want to watch it.

A quick note about what the contest is:
Slopestyle Club Nimis' Photocontest is a special kind of contest because its main focus are not the riders and their riding but photographers and their best 5 photo portfolio of the contest.
Video and some photos inside.
EDIT by Luka:
By the way, if you haven't noticed, this report was written by our new contributor aka p@in in the @$$ aka man of many colors aka David. Give him a warm welcome because he's here to stay. Welcome to the crew.
Backflipping like there's no tomorrow! Woohoo!
You might want to check the IronyBMX website for the full report as well.
Well, there's one thing to expect from Balasz and it's called shredding. In this video he shreds some parks and spots in Louisiana (he visited his friend Danny Josa a few months back). I'm a huge fan of the last icepick. It is massive!

If you're not excited about this, maybe you should re-watch his old edit:

He's been really busy with travelling lately (living the dream). Apparently, his shows were very appreciated and it is really nice to see how BMX is now known worldwide also thanks to such shows.
"To support the June edition of Red Bulletin and it’s new home with the Sunday Telegraph here we have a great video of Senad Grosic as he takes us on a BMX tour of Mecca – expect the usual tailwhips, backflips and stalls that you can expect from the Austrian rider. To find out more about June’s Red Bulletin check out www.redbulletin.com"
Thanks to Andy Vincent for the link.
I'm particularly fond of these points:
5. Don’t Be A Jerk To The Young Kids
Everyone has to start somewhere, and even though it may be frustrating that there is a six-year-old with a huge, bulbous helmet learning to pedal up a wedge while you are trying to land your first flyout tailwhip, if you are a complete jackass to the lil’ chap he may decide to pick up a scooter and leave his bike in the garage. Then by the time you are pro, that’s one less shredder Timmy out there watching your Vimeo video and buying your signature grips. Be patient with the kids and try to help them on occasion. And if their parents are around, maybe give them some advice, too, on how their kid can safely ride the park with everyone else. It’ll help the parents, it’ll help the little kid, and it’ll help you get in your runs without having to be worried about bicycular manslaughter.
7. Don’t Disrespect The Locals
This one covers a lot of ground and includes things like not leaving trash at the park, not messing up the ramps or ledges, and understanding how the park runs itself. If you show up to a park for the first time, chances are you are riding into someone else’s home away from home, so you need to treat that place with respect. You may never go back there again, and you may not care if the ledge gets chipped when you try your 180 to backwards feeble, but the people who ride there every day of the week want to keep their spot in tip-top shape for as long as possible. The vibe of the place and watching how the locals treat the park and each other will give you a pretty good idea of how you should act there.
Learn some skatequette!

The first Muslim Red Bull athlete to visit the holy lands, Senad takes time to reflect on his trip, “Life in Jeddah is completely different to what I imagined!”

I'd like to have more info about him. Anyone?

P.S. The edit is somehow blocked for people in Germany. Cvijo is too cool for Germany anyway.
P.P.S. I needed to add Jozy's comment to this: "not baad for a fat guy.... "
